A sweet lady who will be missed by her church family and her neighbors (of which I was blessed to be both). God bless the family. My thoughts and prayers are for you.

I loved Bobbie. I loved to laugh with her. I remember that we went to Dallas to pic out a couch for her tv and reading room. She and I spent hours picking out fabric and shape of the couch. However, never once did dimensions come into play. Phil and Jim had a heck of time getting the couch in the room because it was too large. We laughed until we were sick. I loved her sense of humor and candid discussions. Just one of many stories.
